Quality image and subtitles DVD

Feb 28, 2013 2:05 PM

We have a video 1920x1080P-30FPS. Our movie weighs 189 GB. The extension of our video us .MOV. We are using Encore to make our DVD. In our movie we have 3 subtitle tracks and AC3 audio. Our question is: when we burned the DVD, the image is very pixelated at times. The image is also blurry and jumpy at times. We are importing the subtitles  from Final Cut Pro to Title Exchange to Encore. When viewed in Encore the subtitles are different size, color from the original. The color is an ugly yellow, smaller than the original and very blurry as well. Could you please help us? Thanks

    1-a DVD is 720x480 so you are reducing your video from HiDef to Standard Def... a quality reduction is likely

    See the picture in that shows the size of a DVD -vs- HiDef


    2-movie weighs 189 GB... which you have to reduce to "about" 4Gig to fit on a single layer DVD, or "about" 8Gig for a dual layer DVD

    The 189 gig does not say much about the movie.

    General speaking 60-90 minutes timeline fits nicely on a dvd, regardless of it being 1920x1080 or SD.

    Beyond 2 hours of timeline it is beter to use a DL.

    So how long is the movie?

    Try again with a dual layer DVD and play at a TV... then compare the quality with a single layer DVD


    Verbatim dual layer is a good brand
